Chapter 3. Synthesizing Spectra

Audio signals are usually dealt with either as functions of time or as functions of frequency. In the previous chapter, we discussed time-domain audio representation and elaborated on various ways in which we can synthesize and manipulate waveforms. Likewise, now we will discuss frequency-domain audio representation and elaborate on the various techniques we can use to synthesize or manipulate spectra (the equivalents of waveforms in the frequency domain). Again, we will be primarily concerned with their visual aspects rather than with their acoustic properties, as there is already a plentitude of technical resources relevant to the latter, which is available to the reader.
